    depends on the actual demensions for your tank, but a common pleco gets to about 20 inches long. Coupled with the other bottom feeders, that may be to much.
    You should probably also look into getting some algea wafers.

    definatly get algea waffers. common plecos get WAY to big, once it is to big u will have to exchange it for a new one or buy special breeds such as a royal pleco that wont grow massive. (Chinease algea eaters, oto cats, orange spotted plecos also work excellent)

    Personally, I suggest returning it. Not only will your 30 gallon be fully stocked with just the 2 goldfish once they get older, plecos have a bad habit of sucking on goldfish and causing ulcers.
